So I've become kind of a blog fanatic. Good because I was never really a newspaper of broadcast news kind of fellow. In any case, in my Sunday scour of the internets, I found out some YP4 fellows/bloggers are up for this great scholarship...for blogging!!

Good Luck!

Something else to boycott...

Wow, I've got the urge to throw up and cry at the same time just thinking about it... Blackface started out in the late 1700s as a performance in which white people made themselves up to appear black in order to exploit and bastardize what was then African American culture for the pleasure of a white audience. It was often the only exposure that audience members had to said culture.

Everything everywhere can basically fit into one of two categories: the bottom 50% of things in the world (1) or the top 50% of things in the world (2). I got this idea from the boyfriend of a friend of a friend and it has completely taken over my life. As I reflect on my daily interactions, I spend time figuring out if that was a (1) or a (2)
